    Update: I've added a tiny 5 line function to allow any external addon to specify which minimap frame GatherMate should draw its icons on.

    As such, I have also added 2 lines of code in Chinchilla Expander to re-parent the GatherMate minimap icons on toggling it, with ckknight's permission. So just update both.


    Thank you thank you thank you! I was just about to sit down and attempt it on my own. Works great by the way!

    Big thanks for Gathermate, I'm really enjoying it.

    Quick question: I recently started using Chinchilla for my minimap (gathermate works fine), but Chinchilla has a feature called Expander which basically upon a bound keypress, displays a second, larger minimap in the center of my screen. All of the blizzard icons appear fine on this expander map, but not gathermate (which I think is because gathermate links only into the original Minimap). Is there a way to somehow get gathermate to draw on this other map as well?

    Here's the line of code from Chinchilla's Expander.lua that creates the secondary minimap:
    minimap = CreateFrame("Minimap", "Chinchilla_Expander_Minimap", UIParent)


    My lua is a bit rusty, but if I read this right, basically I'd need to hook the GatherMate draw functionality to use the Chinchilla_Expander_Minimap frame as it's target correct?

    Is there a way to code it so that if the regular minimap is hidden that I can check for this Chinchilla_Expander_Minimap? I know this is probably outside the scope of GatherMate itself and I would have no problem writing an addon to hook this functionality up, I'm just looking for where to start basically.

    Thanks!
